Note: many of the images in this article are extremely grainy. My specific camera's meter was messed up, and most of the images were very underexposed. My scanner had difficulty picking up the detail, hence the grain. This is not typical of the camera, and that should be kept in mind while reading. For examples of properly exposed images, see the end of the article.
There are a lot of great 35mm point and shoots out there. There a lot of terrible ones too. The Canon Sprint is neither. Its pretty unremarkable to be perfectly honest. Its not mediocre, but not a very good camera either. The images it spits out are fine. Certainly good enough for what it is- a snapshot camera, and actually very sharp(more on that later).
My biggest issue with it is that I don't quite get who its for; at least in the context of modern film photography. While it has a variety of features that I like in a film point and shoot, it also has a few key limitations that are almost counterintuitive to the positive aspects of the camera.
The first(and most off-putting) part of the camera is its extremely limited dx code range with only ISO 100-400 being detectable by the electronics within. As a DX code hacker, this is a real issue, but one that I can get past. The second problem is that the lens is good, but not that good. It could probably print a descent 8x10, but past that the results would likely be questionable. This is pretty typical of point and shoots, but whats odd is that this camera seems to be aimed at more savvy photographers who often print much larger images from 35mm film. Aspects like the manual flash deployment, and frame by frame wind-on mechanism would make it seem like this camera is aimed at more serious shooters, but the lens and ISO range make it unlikely that too many of said people would make it their compact of choice.
But regardless, it is a descent camera worthy of using if you get it at a descent price. To see more accurate test shots, see below. 35mmc also has a review of it with many more test images that more accurately represent the quality this camera can provide.
